It’s been a busy week here at The Bivouac HQ so I thought I’d jump on my mountain bike and go exploring a little further than the next village… we’ve lived here for nearly 4 weeks now so it’s about time.
I went out of The Bivouac Farmhouse, across the valley and within just a couple of miles I was out on top of the moors… WOW. It was absolutely gorgeous… I can’t wait to get up and running and welcome other mountain bikers to The Bivouac… if you fancy a ride out anyway then get in touch. I’d love to point you in the direction of some good routes… maybe join you if my diary works out. Amazingly, much of my ride last night was in the clouds… it was raining as I climbed into the cloud line and then I was in a gentle mist on top of the moors for most of the ride… on the way back down I encountered SNOW! – Yes Snow… in JULY! Look closely at the picture above and you’ll see it flashing past the camera!
I took the above picture on my Blackberry and this bike ride has killed it! Mist + snow + a jolly good shaking = dead Blackberry. Got a replacement coming any minute.
See you soon!

It’s a super, cold crisp morning. Reminded me of this shot I took in St James’ park down in London a couple of years ago…

I’ve been lusting after these Zero Motorcycles… they look fantastic.
They are electric and run almost silently.
I bet they still do quite a bit of damage to the landscape though… I’m not into the idea of razzing across a natural landscape chewing it up as I go… but I gotta confess… there is something magnetic about these… I think it is the combination of design, adrenalin and environmental sensitivity.
Maybe I (and most lovers of outdoor adventure) would be more comfortable achieving the same riding experience on a machine that looked more like a mountain bike? - Maybe that’s what zero should turn their design focus towards. I’d buy one. Maybe I can persuade the team to stock these in The Bivouac Shop.
